Welcome to the City of St. James Website!
Our town and our lives are framed by an extraordinary geographical location and exceptional quality of life. We have a safe, friendly small town conveniently located only an hour to two hours from St. Louis, Springfield, Branson, Jefferson City, and Columbia. St. James is proud of our fine neighborhoods, vibrant history, parks, schools and churches. Our community is a great place to work, raise a family or plan for retirement. Stop by or call us at the Municipal Center located at 100 S. Jefferson Street. We will be glad to be of assistance and hope to see you soon!


On Monday, March 16th, the Mayor and the Utility Board instructed the
Utility office not to collect the late fee and forgo disconnections this
month during this emergency. We understand it is vital that our
citizens be able to wash their hands frequently and have their utilities
available, as they battle this epidemic. Especially for our senior
citizens or those with children that are home from school.
We also understand the hardship this is having on our small businesses as they deal with decreased customer traffic.

We encourage everyone to pay their current bill as soon as they can, to
minimize the burden next month, or pay a partial payment. These
changes are for the current billing cycle and will be re-evaluated as we
work through this difficult time.
As the spread of the COVID-19
impacts our community, the City leadership is monitoring the evolving
situation closely and we are taking precautions to assure we are
maintaining availability to serve our community. The safety of our
employees and customers is always our number one priority, especially
during this time.
Our lobby is CLOSED, but we encourage you to take
advantage of our other payment options, which include on-line bill pay
or utilizing our drop boxes, which are located the front of City Hall at
100 S. Jefferson street or the drive up window from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
